Asylum

Look further on ahead, there between truth and falsehood, a little empty space.
–Amrita Pritam

This house has
no walls—it emits no
sound, gathers no surroundings from the
air.  It is this:  a place to hesitate before
beginning.  It constantly seeks out
less and less and still less,
a story

compressed in
side an ordering of
emptiness, a letting of going,
a happening of what and is not. Unfurnished,
it decorates its absence without
any punctuation.
Unsentenced.

Punam introduced us at dVerse to poet Amrita Pritam and gave us a selection of poetic lines to use as inspiration. I’ve written a triquain.
